Subject of course


Lauretta Vinciarelli

“I wanted to understand the meaning architectural drawing by hand had in the past, and the meaning it has today.
To do so the only things that I could do were to study and draw.” Federico Rebecchini

In the summer term 2020 the subject of architectural representations will be dealt with – in this specific case, the analysis and appropriation of architectural visualisations. In the course of the seminar, each participant designs a page, with the emphasis being on the form of representation and not the design.

Aims of the lecture:
13 selected architects will be analysed by 2 students and the respective representation technique will be  “copied”. The result is 26 charts and a joint publication.

The emphasis will be on:

- Analysis of architectural representations and their inspiration
- Application of representation techniques: drawings, collage, rendering etc.  
- Narrative structure, division of the page, picture composition
- How do I start with a layout?
- Depiction and curating of one’s own working process
- Introduction into exhibition formats – the display as a joint connecting element
